Ketchikan    Tours Page


Description: Guard Islands, a pair of small, rocky islets, stand sentinel over the northern entrance to Tongass Narrows,

which leads south to Ketchikan. Atop the larger of the two islands sits Guard Island Lighthouse, one of the most

accessible lighthouses in Alaska. Its history is brief but eventful, much like the history of Alaska itself. Located twelve miles

northwest of Ketchikan on Guard Island, marking the northern entrance to the Tongass Narrows from Clarence Strait.



Ketchikan is home to the world’s largest collection of totem poles, timeless monuments in cedar

from the first Alaskans. Native dance comes alive with regular performances by skilled groups, just

minutes from Ketchikan, at the Saxman Tribal House and at the Metlakatla Long House.


Two miles south from Ketchikan is Saxman Village. Its totem park boasts the single largest collection of

totems including the famed Abraham Lincoln pole and the Seward “shame” pole. Following in the footsteps

of their ancestors, carvers and their apprentices can be viewed sculpting poles, canoes, paddles and masks.


In a beautiful cove eight miles north of Ketchikan is Totem Bight State Park, where an historic collection

of totems and a native community house can be visited.


Ketchikan’s Totem Heritage Center displays a large collection of original poles retrieved from abandoned

village sites and hosts classes teaching traditional art forms like weaving and regalia making.


The Southeast Alaska Discovery Center houses contemporary poles, examples of native basketry and

other crafts and a traditional Native fish camp exhibit.

Throughout Ketchikan, totems are on display at public parks and even local residences. Several local

art galleries specialize in authentic Alaska native art, from miniature totems and hand woven basketry,

to carved silver, fabric art and original drawings and paintings.

Raven Eagle Gifts isn't your typical gift shop - it's also part museum and gallery. If you ride to our shop at the top of

the world famous Mt. Roberts Tramway, in beautiful downtown Juneau Alaska, you could watch Native artisans working on Alaskan jade,

red & yellow cedar, argillite, beading authentic Tlingit artwork and learn about the indigenous way of life that has existed for hundreds of years.

Throughout the dark winters Alaska's residents look forward to endless summers.

The longest day of the year is June 21—in the Anchorage area nighttime lasts

for a mere four hours, which leaves 20 hours for fun in the sun.
